Backup to Gmail

Backup to Gmail


With Google phone, you can sync your Gmail, Contacts, Calendar, Picasa Albums with Google's Service.

But how about your SMS, MMS and Call log?

Backup to Gmail can help you to backup SMS, MMS and Call log to Gmail labels automatically.

You can also restore SMS and Call log from Gmail to any android device.

Remember to enable IMAP in Gmail and set the correct time/zone.

"communication error..." error message during first connect? Please double check your Gmail account setup.

Some droid X/2 users: due to a timezone bug of motorola's firmware, incoming messages might not be backed up.

XOAuth might not work when you are signed up for 2-step verification. In this case you need to create an application-specific password and enable plain text authentication in preference. Use the username and password you created.

One of the best (if not THE best avaible) backup tools, that take advantage of gmail. Easy to use (set&forget). The setup is simple, straightforward and readable. So far (around a year that I have it), there weren't any issues with it's functionality or backup&restore functions. Just three words: I Reccomend It!

Very good. I could view my call log and SMSes on Gmail even if my phone is not with me. One thing which I want it to be improved though: When I need to restore call log and SMSes (i.e. wipe off my phone to change ROM), it would restore around one-third of the total number of items. It happens like that all the time

Error during backup: General Communication Error" . .. Solution.. I have been trying to get the app to work for the past 3-4 days and finally was able to. I used to get the message "Error during backup: General Communication Error" . I reviewed the Gmail Security settings and Enabled the radio button for allowing Access for less secure apps.

No longer works, after 5.0 Doesn't appear to restore SMS on Android 4.4, probably due to the way they're now handled by Hangouts. Restoring the call log is also broken on 5.0 with a "general communication error" using oauth

Stopped Working I have used this for years and it has worked fine. Now it won't connect and I keep getting error messages. I have done everything from making sure I have IMAP enabled on my gmail uninstalling and re-installing and nothing will work. Please fix!
